    By Lanre Ola and Ahmed Kingimi MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (Reuters) - Three suicide bombers killed 18 people in the northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri, capital of the state worst hit by the Boko Haram insurgency, its police commissioner said on Saturday. Nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack but the use of suicide bombers in crowded areas is a hallmark of the Islamist militant group, which has killed more that 20,000 people since 2009 and forced over two million to flee their homes. Damian Chukwu, police commissioner for Borno state, said the attack took place at a fish market around 20 kilometres (12 miles) from the centre of Maiduguri at about 8:00 p.m. (1900 GMT) on Friday.

McMaster called on Saturday for more forceful action to halt Iran's development of what he said was an increasingly powerful network of proxy armies in Lebanon, Syria, Yemen and Iraq. McMaster accused Iran of escalating a campaign to increase its influence in the Middle East by building and arming "Hezbollah-style" proxy armies in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere as it has done in Lebanon. "So the time is now, we think, to act against Iran," he told the Munich Security Conference, calling on U.S. allies to halt trade that was helping underwrite the expansion of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, the most powerful military and economic force in the Islamic Republic.

  • Government urges councils to waive road closure charges for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

    Golocal247.com news

    The government is urging councils to waive their charges for road closures on May 19, in the hopes of encouraging Britain to celebrate the Royal wedding with thousands of street parties. The wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will fall on a Saturday, the same day as the FA Cup final, with leaders hoping the mood of celebration will buoy the public. They today launch a “handy guide” to throwing a street party, reminding keen organisers to get in touch with local councils in good time to plan road closures and insurance. Information from the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government States: “Many councils, from Bromley to Salford, have already announced that they are waiving charges for street party road closures, making it easier and cheaper than ever to hold celebrations. “The government is urging other councils to follow suit.” The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011 saw bank holiday street parties held throughout Britain, including on Downing Street. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visit Cardiff, in pictures There will be no extra day off for the marriage of Prince Harry, fifth-in-Line to the throne, and Meghan Markle, who wed at Windsor Castle on May 19 before taking a carriage ride around the town to greet those who have turned up to see them. Chris Gittins, who runs streetparty.org.uk, said the celebrations will show a “fantastic part of British culture", adding: “It's a rare excuse to meet neighbours really, a traditional excuse to meet neighbours in a relaxed atmosphere.” Guy Oliver, from the Old Barn Inn in Glooston, said they would be throwing a street party to encourage people to “come together in a community”. "It'll be a few union jacks and we're going to serve food to everyone's taste,” he said. Sandra Hastings, founder of Newcastle-based charity Silverline Memories which helps those with dementia, said she is planning a “good old-fashioned party with bunting, and red white and blue balloons, and trestle tables with tonnes of homemade food". "At our charity we provide people with the opportunity to do things they wouldn't have done otherwise, and take any excuse for a knees up,” she said. Jake Berry MP, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State said: “We’ve made it easier than ever for local residents from all backgrounds to come together to celebrate the royalwedding and we hope councils will get into the spirit by helping people wishing to organise street parties. “With the FA Cup final taking place on the same day, there's never been a better reason to hold a street party and our updated guidance makes clear the steps residents need to take to ensure an enjoyable and safe day is had by all.”

  • Three Billboards protest takes aim at Marco Rubio in call for gun control after Florida school shooting

    Golocal247.com news

    Campaigners took inspiration from Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri to call for gun control in the wake of a school shooting that killed 17. It is the second time in a week that activists have emulated the movie after Grenfell Tower protesters carried out a similar stunt in London. The Florida placards were driven around Miami on Friday to put pressure on its Republican senator after the high school massacre this week in Florida. The signs - reading "Slaughtered in school", "And still no gun control?", "How come, Marco Rubio?" - echoed the Oscar-nominated film where a mother challenges authorities over justice for her daughter who was raped and murdered. The protest was organised by activist group Avaaz, which highlighted the campaign donations Mr Rubio has accepted from gun advocates the National Rifle Association (NRA). Marco Rubio has come under fire for his response to the Florida school shooting Credit: AP Emma Ruby-Sachs, Avaaz's deputy director, said: "The senator has taken fire across the country for his toothless response to the shooting, calling it 'inexplicable'. We call that inexcusable. "Florida has notoriously lax gun laws and Rubio, who is supported by the NRA, has never attempted to reform them. "There have been 334 mass shootings in last 12 months, and yet no new federal gun laws since 1994." The protest followed a similar one in London on Thursday which highlighted the "lack of progress" made since the Grenfell Tower fire that killed 71 people in June. The Community-led organisation, Justice4Grenfell, parades three billboards backdropped by St. Paul's Cathedral Credit: AP Meanwhile, Mr Rubio criticised the FBI after it admitted failing to investigate a tip-off last month that the shooting suspect, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, had a "desire to kill" and had access to guns. The teenager has been charged with killing 17 people in the shooting spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland on Wednesday. Peers described Cruz as a troubled individual and said there had been warning signs, while police have not offered a motive but said he was previously expelled from the school. Reports, citing law enforcement officials, said Cruz legally purchased the the assault rifle in Florida in February last year having passed a background check. The massacre has once again sparked a debate over availability of firearms in the US, with the country already having seen eight school shootings that have caused death or injury this year.

  • Needed in Syria: Disengagement

    One is the outbreak of another war between Israel and its neighbors.  A reminder of this danger has come from events that began when Israel said it shot down an Iranian drone that had entered its airspace.  Israeli F-16s then attacked a command center in Syria, during which Syrian air defenses downed one of the Israeli warplanes (a rare event for Israel).  Israel subsequently launched a much more widespread set of aerial attacks within Syria.  The Israelis have conducted scores of attacks in Syria over the last five years, but this most recent assault may have been the largest Israeli attack there since the 1980s. A new war involving Israel would surely also involve Lebanese Hezbollah.  There is no indication that Hezbollah seeks such a war.  The group has incurred significant costs by participating in fighting within Syria and has many wounds to lick.  Its leaders still have regrets about the brinksmanship that last got Hezbollah entangled in a war with Israel.  Even though it could get in some hits with cross-border rocket fire, the group’s leaders know that in a new clash it would get badly bloodied by its militarily more capable foe.
